Peninsula Preschool plays to kids' strengths

Kids love to play, and Peninsula Preschool in Ephraim makes sure they take more from it than just a cool story to tell mom and dad. Established in 1983, Peninsula Preschool uses play as a way to introduce academic concepts. This ranges from playing with blocks to identify shapes and colors to performing music to learn how to think and imagine creatively. Director Jill Harkaway says she brings a lot of different philosophies into the classroom for the benefit of their three and four-year-old students.

Four-year-old students get to explore the world outside their classroom walls with visits to The Ridges Sanctuary once a week and the Peninsula School of Art. Harkaway credits a Door County baby boom and the support of generous donors for keeping their classrooms full and busy. Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year begins in May.
